When you're touring around San Francisco with your furry best friend, neither of you will want to miss dog-walking Telegraph Hill. While the city is known for some of the steepest streets with the best views in the country, Telegraph Hill might just be the best one of them all. Not only is this walk a huge physical challenge to tire out your pup, but it's full of cultural charm and views that will distract you from the long and arduous walk.

If you're in the mood for a good tour, download a self-guided walking tour app on your phone and listen to the unique history and stories of this area. There are many interesting spots along the walk up and back from Telegraph Hill, and while your dog may not need any distraction from the steep climb, you might enjoy a little history while you are huffing and puffing up to the view point.

With a name like Telegraph Hill, you know you are in for some steep dog walking. Everyone has seen the famed hilly streets of San Francisco, and watched movies of people getting a workout while trying to walk up the side walks. What you might not know is that the dog-walk you choose doesn't have to be all concrete. You'll have the opportunity to climb up or down metal stairways and view beautiful gardens and flowering plants along the way. Depending on how you plan your dog walk on Telegraph Hill, you can make sure your trip has plenty of variation.

Something to always keep in mind is the time of year and the strenuous nature of walking for you and your dog. Make sure you are both ready for a steep walk up and down Telegraph Hill. Always bring plenty of water and snacks for you both, and be ready to call it quits if either one of you starts to have trouble.

If you are looking for the most popular walk to reach the Coit Tower, which is one of the most popular and prominent high points in the city, you can take the Greenwich Street Steps. These are the closest steps to the tower and the least strenuous pathway. When you get to the top, feel free to take a long rest while enjoying the view of the Golden Gate Bridge and looking out into the Bay. 

If you don't mind a few extra steep sections of stairs and are looking for a more out-of-the-way adventure, check out the Phillips Street Stairs. These stairs rise in three sections and can seem never-ending at the start. If you take them one step at a time, you'll be delighted with a beautiful garden along the way with plants that flower in all seasons. In between the flowering plants, you'll view inspiring art-deco buildings that hint at the architectural history of the area.
